Air Pollution Disparities and Equality Assessments of US National Decarbonization Strategies

Past Event

November 15, 2023

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm est

Energy transitions and decarbonization require rapid changes to a nation’s electricity generation mix. There are many feasible decarbonization pathways for the electricity sector, yet there is vast uncertainty about how these pathways will advance or derail the nation’s energy equality goals. We present a framework for investigating how decarbonization pathways, driven by a least-cost paradigm, will impact air pollution inequality across vulnerable groups (e.g., low-income, minorities) in the United States.

The Center on Global Energy Policy (CGEP) at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs will host Dr. Destenie Nock, visiting faculty member at CGEP and an assistant professor of engineering and public policy and civil and environmental engineering at Carnegie Mellon University for a fireside chat to explore these issues. Dr. Geoffrey Heal, Donald C. Waite III professor of social enterprise, and Paul Garrett professor of public policy and corporate responsibility, Columbia Business School, will moderate.

Doors will open at 5:45 p.m. and the conversation will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. A cocktail reception will follow the conversation.

This event will be hosted in person in New York City.
